The Power of Love by Melvin Leonard/Barbeque Hot Sauce Band #RnB #Soul

 



Listen on Apple Music

Melvin Leonard hails from the colorful southern city of New Orleans, Louisiana. His grandfather, Walter Manaday, played drums for Louis Armstrong. His mother, Mary Sterling Leonard, played honky-tonk blues piano in church along with having a superb velvet voice. Melvin grabbed a pair of drumsticks before he grabbed his first bottle, and he has been pounding out rhythms for as long as he could remember. 

Singing at church and other events, at the tender age of 10, these talents began to develop in Melvin`s childhood with music, song, and appreciation for the unique southern sound named Funk. 

His professional career started in the internationally acclaimed nightclubs of the New Orleans French Quarter. As a singer, songwriter, and producer, Melvin`s  style of singing is funky, and he is likely to become one of the hottest stars of the R&B world. 

Melvin first new CD release was titled "Melvin Leonard: The Prince of the Blues" in 1996. It received a multitude of appreciation and took off like a rocket. 

The songs on this CD are: 

 You Wont Miss Your Water, Till Your Well Runs Dry 
 You Up-Set Me Baby 
 Drunk Woman Ain’t No Good For Me 
 So Long My Baby Is Gone 
 Nobody Wants You When Your down and Out 
 I’ve Been Ripped Off For My Money 
 One Woman with Two Men 
 I’m A Fool for You Baby, But Mama Didn’t Raise No Fool 
 I’m Your Blues Man Baby 
 Don’t Talk About My baby, Leave My Baby Alone

Melvin`s enthusiasm for music is expressed in his new release, "Fired Up," his second CD with a more R&B Funk original style. 

The songs on this CD are: 
 Slipping In the Mix
 Fire It Up 
 Wave In The Water 
 VooDoo Booty Shake 
 Hello Y’all 
 Shake Your Booty
 Party 
 This Is What Dreams Is All About 
 She’s Sexy 
 Your Got To Move Your Body

The second CD propelled Melvin into the next level and will surely result in success. In turn, Melvin`s second CD is a high demand item for all music lovers. Both CDs were released on his own Spice Records Label that is colored with the soulful sound of the Southern Funky South.

The greatest moments in Melvin`s career have been playing his music live. He has played with some of the greatest artists in the music industry. Such as The Heart of Soul Band, The City News Band, The Profascinations Pros Band, The Chaparrals Band, Jean Knight, Irma Thomas, King Floyd, Aaron Neville, O.V. Wright, Z.Z. Hill, Arnie Kato, Antoine and Anatole Domino Jr. just to name a few.
